All of these packages will have to go into testing together; so none of
them can go in until all are rebuilt.  Because sdl-image1.2 was
uploaded with low urgency, the earliest libtiff4 can make it into sarge
is 11 Aug.  If you upload asc today with low urgency, that will push the
migration back another day to 12 Aug; but if uploaded with medium
urgency, it won't (necessarily) delay the transition unless you wait
until August 6 before uploading.

Uploading with urgency=medium still has the benefit of making sure
*your* package isn't the one holding up the migration. ;)
